I brewed some chai in mine and now the silicone (I think?) valve bits smell of cinnamon and ginger, which can bleed into other teas I try to brew. Normal cleaning (warm, soapy water) isn't really helping. Help?

I accidentally left wet leaves in the base and now the strainer is a little moldy. Hours do I clean it? Am I just resigned to buying a whole new item since I can't get a replacement filter?

Does the Ingenuitea require descaling like coffee appliances? If so what's the best method to use to not affect the taste of the tea?

Why don't you guys sell replacement strainers? Because after a while they get really funky...

I just got it and I am wondering, how do you detach the bottom to get to the filter to put the tea in or do you just add it to the container and add hot water to it? This didn't come with instructions

I just received my new ingenuiTea (I’ve had several that lasted many years) and it has a metal strainer that I can’t seem to remove but some reviews say it is removable. What is the current state of filters on this model: removable or not?

Before I purchase one I would like to know if it comes apart for cleaning. I purchased one similar from a company who no longer is in business. I love it but am looking for a new one.
